What a mess!
on 26 March 2009
An artist of Annie Lennox's calibre deserves to be treated with more respect! This so-called "deluxe" edition of her greatest solo hits is nothing short of cheap and insulting! The packaging is flimsy with minimal artwork to speak of; the discs are so tightly packed that you have to pry them out their inserts (which will inevitably scratch them beyond description); and the track selection on the CDs beggars belief! Why, oh why, do we get 'Something So Right' and 'Waiting In Vain' on the DVD but NOT the CD? Both tracks would easily have fitted and, quite frankly, are infinitely superior to new cover versions of 'Shining Light' and 'Pattern Of My Life' which, in my opinion, are bland by Annie's standards! And why is the bonus disc such a missed opportunity? Surely, some rare live performances could have been included instead of tracks most fans already have in their collections? Come on, Sony BMG, whose neck should be on the chopping block for this unmitigated disaster?
